7 Most important things about Nvidia GTX 1080 graphic you should know

geforce GTX 1080
Earlier this month NVIDIA announced there new flagship GeForce card, GeForce GTX 1080 video card. The GeForce GTX 1080 is the first 16nm/14nm-based video card. Unlike previous launches NVIDIA, the company is lifting their performance and architecture embargo today.
However the game lovers will have to wait till 27th – next Friday – with pre-order sales starting this Friday. Before that have a look some interesting things about Nvidia Graphic GTX 1080.

Let us look some interesting things about Nvidia Graphic GTX 1080.

1. More Faster

The Pascal introduced in GeForce GTX 1080 which makes it smaller 16nm FinFET architecture. With the new processor NVIDIA has managed to insert 7.2 billion transistors into the Nvidia GTX 1080. The GPU is equipped with 20 streaming multi-processor, each having 128 cores. It has 2560 CUDA cores, 20 geometry units, 160 texture units, 64 ROP units and 8GB of GDDR5X video RAM (operating at 10GBps) to top it all off. All these specs get together, makes it to operate over 2Ghz clock speed.

2. Fast Sync

Before these Nvidia had introduced G-Sync to make frame rate more smoother and introduced Fast sync in GeForce GTX 1080 to eliminate tearing completely. The Fast Sync checks every frame to make it smoother. Nvidia claims its triple buffer process reduces latency by 60 milliseconds in Counter Strike GO. Fast Sync is necessary for games with much faster refresh rates. Fast Sync makes it more compatible for game lovers.

3. Piscal Architecture

Nvidia has introduced piscal architecture to deal with processor best performance. The GeForce GTX 1080 works in a new dynamic mode in which it will call on the CPU to perform more tasks if there’s a gap at all and vice-versa. Its’ a smarter use of resources to fill what Nvidia calls dead space and it leads to 15-20% increase in frames per second. Nvidia has also provided the preemption abilities with asynchronous time warp which will help you to experience incredible VR. The GPU will adjust the images according to your head, how you move.

4. GPU Boost 3.0

Nvidia has made boosting the clock speed more easier and efficient. It is very helpful for overclockers. If you feel sometime impatient with the performance, GPU Boost 3.0 can add overclocking scanner support, making it work better with overclocking software. In addition to this soon Nvidia will going to release new SLI bridges which will be necessary for game at 4K and 144fps but this will work with only pascal architecture.

5. Take Pictures with GeForce GTX 1080

Nvidia has also enhanced the Ansel feature which will allow you to take picture to next level like professional photographer. Yes, you can take screenshot but this Ansel feature give you a various parameters like to set their focal length, shutter speed, aperture and a host of other customizable, Instagram-inspired shaders.

It has ability to take super high resolution shoots like the high resolution shoots made on the Olympus Pen-F and OM-D E-M5 Mark II. You can also create a panaromas with 10 photos. After you’re all done snapping, you can edit your photos in Lightroom and Photoshop with the full flexibility of RAW images.

6. Simultaneous Multi-Screen Projection (SMP)

GeForce GTX 1080 is designed to yield better sense of depth and perspective also to improve the multi monitor setup. SMP is the best asset that can can double the performance of virtual reality. For Non-VR experience it uses the feature to degrade the graphical quality around the edges of the frame in order to get closer to a perfectly smooth 60fps.

7. Premium Card GeForce GTX 1080

While previous edition  of Nvidia’s graphics cards first launched with a reference edition. The GeForce GTX 1080 comes with a founder edition which means premium parts directly from Nvidia. Nvidia also claims the higher price will allow it to keep producing the Founders Edition throughout the life cycle of the GPUs, whereas the reference cards were being produced at a loss and would eventually disappear.
